Why Avatar suffers

29 Carrying Baba up the Hill, February 1958. Surrounding Baba ar

…Why and how can I suffer when I am the Ocean of Power, Knowledge and Bliss? God has infinite power, infinite knowledge, infinite bliss. The Avatar is God Himself incarnate on earth as man. During his ministry as the Avatar, he uses only infinite knowledge. He does not make use of his infinite power and infinite bliss. This is because God incarnates as man and goes through universal suffering and helplessness in order to emancipate mankind from its ignorance of its own suffering and helplessness.

If the Avatar were to use his infinite power, how could he experience helplessness? If the Avatar were to use his infinite bliss, how could he suffer? Therefore, he does not use either his infinite bliss or his infinite power. Such is his infinite love and compassion for creation!

Jesus Christ, who had infinite power, let himself become helpless and suffered the humiliation of letting the people beat him, spit on him and jeer at him. He suffered crucifixion on the cross, but he did not help himself with the power and bliss that were his. Instead, he cried out: “Father, why hast Thou forsaken me?” He said it to himself, of course, for he was one with God the Father.
